PAT’S THOUGHTS:

I really like USC in a bounce-back spot here.  They have had two really tough road trips in a row, and not get to return home.  My concern is WSU always can score points.  I am not sure if this young USC offense can.  They also have been atrocious ATS for the past few years.  I like them, but won’t lay over a FG with them.  Pass.
